Beautiful pale orange colour with fluffy white head. Citrusy sorbet tart and wood in aroma. Earthy flavour with light gastric juice along with gentle acidity but still loaded with funkiness. Really nice mouthfeel with fluffy, porous feeling from the gentle natural carbonation. Bit bitter in the end.

Orangish pour. White head. Lots of cheese and wood in the nose with some fruit and tons of sour funk. Flavor is sour, lemony, cheesy and a bit of sweetness mixed in. Nice brew. Glad to try this one for sure.

(75cl bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) large white head that mostly dissipates, atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, barnyard/funk, some lime/lemon, dirty sock. Taste is medium sweet, barnyard, cheese/funk. Effervescent light-medium body, light acidity.

Nose is most reminiscent of Hanssens with lots of cheesy, funk. The flavor shows Hanssens funk, Drie Founteinen citrus rind and Boon’s sugar water. Spritzy, thin body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent deep golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh grassy tartness and lemon citrus with a touch of funk. Starts with good fullness and a lot of pale malty sweetness for the style before a clean, slightly puckering citrusy finish. Full bodied and a little sweet for the style, but has nice tart balance and oaky complexity. An enjoyable gueuze.
